Arlene Eakle is a professional genealogist. She also holds a PhD in English History with a minor in Colonial American History. Her PhD dissertation was entitled Antiquaries and the Writing of Local History in England, 1550-1800. During her studies, she read and analyzed hundreds of books written by English writers during those years. The antiquarians wrote about The Knights Templars, The Isle of Thanet, and the Priory of Sion and its many chapels, as well as about many related topics. These books were all written and published long before Dan Brown's now popular book, The DaVinci Code.
Arlene's research as a historian years before the topic became popular plus her current skills as a professional genealogy researcher give her insights that are quite different from the recent critics of the DaVinci Code. She refutes some of the recent claims and cites evidence not mentioned publicly for hundreds of years.
Arlene has now published her views and tells how she came to her conclusions. You can find this interesting article on Arlene's genealogy blog at http://www.arleneeakle.com/wordpress.
